Come on in!

Welcome to Misty Willow, a fictional farm located in a fictional county southwest of Columbus, Ohio.

The farm and the county may have come to life in my imagination but they were inspired by a Civil War-era home I lived in as a teen.

Built in the mid-1800s, the two-story brick house and its surrounding land was first known as Maple Lane and later as Twin Oaks.

We simply called it “The Brick.”

A beloved house. Rumors of historic Underground Railroad activity. A secret room beneath the study.

These elements and more are woven into a story that explores how much our lives are affected by past decisions and long ago loves.
